Brewster, David, Sir (1781-1868) Scottish physicist; invented kaleidoscope. Autograph Letter Signed ("D Brewster"), Allerly, Wednesday (c. September 1832), 1 pg., 13 x 8 in. To Thomas Scott: "I enclose a draft for £7 on the belief that the Balance of £1-14-6 is the last sum due by you to me for Turnips &c. I do not understand how you have been late to pay Land Tax for me…." Boldly penned and signed; short fold separation along lower margin affects nothing. Only three Brewster letters have appeared at major auctions in the last 25 years. Scarce.
Estimated Value $200 - 300.
